Luxor (which means “Palaces”) is located along the Nile River in southern Egypt.

Once the dynastic and religious capital of Middle Kingdom and New Kingdom Egypt, Luxor is home to a vast number of ancient temples and royal tombs, including the famous and impressive Temple of Karnak.

Luxor itself is located in a scenic desert area and has a bustling harbor on the Nile. It is possible to rent boats to take river tours.

Overall Atmosphere: Combination
Combination Atmosphere destinations combine elements of both cultural and natural destinations, where this combination is itself essential to the travel experience. Common examples are Archaeological Sites (where culture is usually experienced outdoors), Scenic Local Markets (where indigenous cultures interact outdoors), Hotsprings and Vineyard Areas (where nature provides the raw materials but humans create the surroundings), and Unique Cultural Landscapes (where humans and nature interact in innovative ways, as in the elaborate rice terracing systems of Asia).

Combination Interests typically fall somewhere in the middle of the three types of primary interests in terms of
(a) how climate-dependent they are
(b) how accessible and physically demanding they are.
Featuring both cultural and natural attractions.

Archeological Sites
Luxor is filled with diverse archeological remains from its ancient world. This includes:
The temple complexes of Luxor and Karnak

The Valley of the Kings

Medinet Habu

The Tombs of the Nobles

The Ramesseum Temple
Boat Tours
The Nile River plays a central life in Luxor life. Especially popular are sunset rides. More ambitious visitors can hire boats to take them further down the river on multi-day excursions.

The old capital of Egypt, Thebes, was on the West bank of the Nile. As a result, this is the side with most of the major ruins including Valley of the Kings, the Valley of the Queens and other important sites; the Western Valley ruins, and a few hotels.

The modern city of Luxor is on the East bank. That area has the train and bus stations, most of the hotels and restaurants, some museums, tourist shops and so on.
